3.84/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a pint glass.

A: Dark amber color. Kind of murky looking. Leaves a small white head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

S: Smells of dark fruits, raisins, some caramel, and malts.

T: Tastes pretty much just like it smells. Nicely balanced, has a little bit of hoppiness to it as well.

M: Medium-bodied, kind of creamy as well. Good amount of carbonation.

O: Good doppelbock, although there isn't really anything in this beer that "wows" me. Tastes kind of like Raisin Bran, which isn't a bad thing. Awesome bottle art, too.

3.79/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Deep copper color and the medium-tall, beige head is very compact but bit light. Dissipates slowly into decent lacings.

S: Rich sweet, dark malt. Dark dried fruits, some bitter hops. Very bready, almost like Swedish rye crisp-bread. Some faint citric notes.

T: Syrupy sweet, very sweet. Lots of dark dried fruits, raisins and plums. Faint bitter hops in the back, but this is very sweet.

M: Smooth and thick, creamy body with low dissipation and a sweet, but short aftertaste.

O: Nice Doppelbock, perhaps a bit too sweet (!?!?) if that even is possible when it comes to Doppelbocks.

500 ML bottle poured into a pint glass. No bottling date.

Pours a medium brown color with a light white head. Smell is typical for the style - very malty with caramel, toffee and other similar notes. Taste is more of the same, and again very true to the style. very malty and a tad sweet. toasty. Mouthfeel is medium. maybe a bit lacking in this area as it doesnt go down smoothly. medium carbonation.

overall this is a very good representation of what a doppel bock is supposed to be. its not outstanding and wont blow you away, but if youre a fan of this style that not a lot of american breweries do right, then this beer will suffice nicely.
